User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021230 Phoenix/0.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021230 I have two news accounts that use username/passwords, one where the server asks, and one where I have Mozilla set to always use one. While Mailnews frequently forgets one or both of these passwords (and entirly seperate bug or two), when I get a prompt for either one's username (and then password), there is no indication at all as to which account it's for, so I have to guess which username/password combination to enter. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add a news account, which either needs a password, or can be used with one. 2. Try to do something with it, like subscribe. 3. Wait for the username/password prompts. Actual Results: You get a username (then password) prompt with no indication of what account it's for. Expected Results: The dialogs (both of them) should have the name of the account (preferably), or at least the NNTP server name. Screenshots to be attached.

Username displayed by password manager is "<>" if entry is for News. Will this symptom be fixed by this bug? Should I open another bug?
